One Dead in Jerusalem Rock Attack
Alexander Levlovitz was killed in a car accident as a result of rock-throwers in Jerusalem’s Armon Hanatziv neighborhood.
An Israeli motorist was fatally injured late on Sunday night in a car crash apparently caused by Arab rock-throwers in the Armon Hanatziv neighborhood of south Jerusalem.
Israel Police said the car lost control after being hit by rocks and hit an electricity pole, fatally injuring the driver, a 64-year-old Jewish man.
“The driver who was involved in an accident, apparently as a result of stone-throwing… died at Hadassah-Ein Kerem hospital,” police spokeswoman Luba Samri said.
She said the incident occurred at around midnight and police were investigating the circumstances.
The victim has been named as Alexander Levlovitz, a resident of Jerusalem. His death was announced on Monday morning.
Local media reports said the driver and two other passengers who were lightly injured were returning home from a celebration for the start of the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah).
In response, Prime Minister Binyaamin Netanyahu called an “emergency meeting” of members of his security cabinet to discuss ways to curb rock-throwing and firebombs following a number of recent incidents.
